12 days of holiday giving! Day Two!

12 days of holiday giving! Day Two!


Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of our annual "12 days of holiday giving!"  For these twelve days we have partnered with our design team and our sponsors to celebrate YOU!  Yes YOU!  If you didn't join us for our Day 1 kick off, be sure to start here!

Today design team member Marla Kress joins us and as always, puts a little magic into her gift wrapping!  She is a brilliant one!

"Happy Holidays SCT readers!  Today I’m here to keep the creativity going when it comes to gift giving.  I know wrapping gifts isn’t the most exciting task.  But if you look at a gift like a scrapbooking layout or card, it can be fun.  I know there are lots of patterns and colors available in the giftwrap department but more often than not I look for the neutrals, in this case white and brown.    


Think of it like decorating, use a neutral base and accessorize!  As a scrapbooker, you probably have more than enough extras lying around.

Take this package for instance:


With a simple brown base I was able to add a strip of American Crafts patterned paper, some Maya Road snowflakes, twine, brads and a gift tag.  All extras that I had lying around!


For this package I went with a photo.  It doesn’t have to be a person – landscape would look great too with a handwritten note.  I wanted it to feel organic so I used twine, a button and die cut leaves from Spellbinders.  Clean and simple. 


On this last package I used a white base so that my washi tape would show.  I added twine and a chalkboard star from BasicGrey and it took less than five minutes!

I hope you’re inspired to dress up a package or two this season with the extra supplies you have lying around.  If you do, please post a link in the comments so that we can be inspired by you too!" ~  Marla Kress


On Day Two, we have TWO amazing prizes to share with you!  From our friends at Simple Stories, we have the brand new SN@P! Life Documented planner system!  This is a huge prize package valued at over $100 and everything you need to get organized in such a beautiful way.  

Life Documented - SCT giveawayOur second prize today is from our dear friends at Paper Smooches Stamps!  Imagine all the things you could do with a $50 gift certificate!  Stamps and dies to melt your heart and keep you busy crafting all day long. The hard part will be deciding what to use the gift certificate on.  Decisions, decisions…. 


These wonderful prizes can be yours!   For an opportunity to win, please leave a comment below by 6:00 pm EST on Sunday, December 21st. All prizes will be announced right here and on Facebook at noon on December 23rd!  Good luck everyone!

For all our friends on Facebook, we would LOVE for you to take a moment to give each day's sponsor a huge "SCT thank you!" and "LIKE" them on Facebook if you don't already.   Our sponsors always love to hear from you and they tell us all the time our readers are the best.  We agree!  For today's sponsors, please visit them on Facebook here:

    Thank you Marla for the easy and sweet ideas to dress up our Gift Wrapping. I must admit that I don’t like to Gift Wrap, but your ideas (looking at the package as a Card Front or Layout) will definitely motivate me to try some of my 6×6 Paper, Ribbon, and Embellishments. Sometimes I need a little push to see around the box! Thank you Paper Smooches and Simple Stories for your lovely Giveaways. Two of my Favorite Companies!

  114. Lynne in NI December 9, 2014 at 4:56 pm

  126. Karen Lingel December 9, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    I love using big, shaped flowers instead of “bows” on packages. You know how you go to a huge amount of trouble to make a beautiful, realistic flower, and it is too large to put on a card, and too lumpy to mail, and will only get squashed in your scrapbook? Yeah, those flowers — use ’em as package bows. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  127. Lin M. December 9, 2014 at 5:58 pm

    Love the photo with the simple twine. Great way to use up extra washi tape. I use different punches on old Christmas cards to dress up a package or tag. Glitter a must!!
